Disc Jockey services have a broad price range depending on the location, event, and experience. DJ prices can range anywhere from a few hundred bucks to a couple of thousand dollars.
If you are hiring a DJ with over ten years of experience, you can expect to pay the higher range for your wedding. They will charge less for private parties or different events.
DJs, just like any other service provider, set their packages based on several factors.
Pricing is not negotiable; the packages are carefully crafted based on their experience, time, and other factors.
An organized DJ will spend on average 6 -12 hours planning before the wedding.
On the day of the wedding, the DJ has to arrive extra early to set up all the equipment, test all the equipment, and do a soundcheck.
It is common to have ten hours of preparation; here is an example of the total hours for one wedding:
10 hours of preparation
1.5-hour set up or more depending
In total, it's easily 18 hours to create a successful wedding to be remembered for years to come.
